:bulletgreen: Yes, we do accept cross overs! Please bare in mind, the pokemon MUST be the main theme in the image. Example: Pikachu in a link costume, this would be accepted. However; link with a pokeball and Ash Ketchum's hat would not be acceptable.

:bulletred: Must be an Original piece, using references is ok as long as you don't blatantly copy Official Art/Fanart.

:bulletred: Any hint of Sexualized, Fetishist, Vulgar, or Risque pieces will be denied. No questions asked.

===========================================

Keep in mind you do not need to be a member
if you simply want to watch the group.


*Note that a 2 week waiting period will be put into effect if you send in a member application with no artwork and get auto-rejected.
**Our standards for acceptable cosplay are a bit higher than the art standards, as we take both photo quality and costume quality into consideration.

For the longest time those of us currently modding for PKMNDaily have been strictly sticking to the rules and regulations set forth by the original group founders! However, we notice every day that the fandom grows ever more creative and continues to wow us! With so many new ideas and cool things added into the pokemon world, we know we need to move WITH it, or get left behind! We certainly don't want the latter! So we will be revising and revisiting some rules we've had here since the founding of the group and adding some amendments as well! If any of you guys have some additional suggestions for us, PLEASE let us know! We do appreciate and encourage your feedback always! 



Fusions, variants and crosses oh my! 


Before any confusion sets in we want to go ahead and make a statement; we will continue to say "No fakemon". While we appreciate some of the immaculate fan made pokes out there (hello pokemon sage, oh how I love you so), we are a "Fan art" group. However; we ARE implementing some new folders and some new topics to the group! I know the suspense is killing you so we'll get too it! Everyone's idea of what a cross/fusion/variant is can vary person to person. So here are our definitions of the following + what we will accept into our group!

Crossbreeds / Fusions of 2 or More Pokemon
A crossbreed would be a MIX of two (or more) existing official pokemon or mega pokemon. Crosses combine them in such a way that you know what two pokemon (or more) are present and it's tastefully done. The "Pokemon Sprite fusions" meme falls into this category. The most important thing that we will look for in these is that the features of the Pokemon in the crossbreed/fusion/variant are there - We will not accept fusions that do not obviously have the traits of the Pokemon used in the fusion.

Here are some examples of what we would consider a crossbreed/fusion:
FUSION TIME by vaporotem  Tyrantrum Crossbreed by Darksilvania<da:thumb id="554863327"/>  maractus variations by extyrannomon


Pokemon Variations:
These are less about fusing Pokemon together and more about the possibilities of what could naturally occur in a single Pokemon. Some examples of this are the variation in the patterning of a Pokemon, varying the anatomy of a Pokemon to fit a different climate, changing the plant inspiration of the Pokemon (like using a different kind of mushroom on the back of a Paras), and many more! The idea of this is "what if this Pokemon evolved differently, what if it lived in a different area or a different climate?" A great canon example of this are the East and West Shellos and how their designs have taken on different forms based on where they are located: cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/thu…

Here are some examples of what we would consider a Pokemon variant:
Pokemon Variants 5 by WendyMartin  <da:thumb id="525446437"/>

~~

You can now submit Pokemon fanart to our group that follows the above examples / our definitions of what a Pokemon crossbreed/fusion/variant is! They will only be accepted if they are placed in the correct folder - the Fusion and Variants folder, located here: pokemondaily.deviantart.com/ga… We will not be accepting individual fusion/variant Pokemon to our other group folders, so please do submit them to the correct folder! And since this is a quality-based group, we will still be judging your submissions based on the creativity and skill put into your artworks when you are submitting the group (as well as making sure that they follow what we consider to be a fusion/variant!)

comm story Dark secret government breeding farm hi this is a pokemon story based on dark and erotic setting.the story will be divided into 3 parts.....commission for anonymous.This is a world where each trainer travels the world with their Pokemon, training, challenging gyms, becoming strong to grow their bond with their Pokemon, and then face the ultimate battle against the Pokemon League champion.An organization whose true identity is unknown, hides in the shadow of everyone and the rest of the world.The organization wants to exploit the Pokemon League for their evil plans, selling eggs to create new, super-powerful Pokemon and then manipulating the Pokemon League.At the Pokemon League they conduct experiments and for this reason, every morning material arrives in warehouses that hide strange packages, that is, strange goods that arrive from another unknown country; these packages contain a strange secret formula that is used to transform human beings into super powerful Pokemon and for this reason so much experimentation is done on them.When a human being receives this mysterious egg in his hands, a strange alarm goes off or it produces a very loud sound and immediately afterwards steam or a strange gas begins to escape which completely envelops the human being, thus breathing this substance after a while it circulates throughout the body and so after a while you begin to notice strange phenomena in your body and mind, thus phases of transformation begin in which the body manifests strange changes and then the transformation is carried out successfully.The League then, a scientist shows his experiment in which during these phases the mind begins to have both auditory and visual hallucinations and subsequently other strange mental phenomena are amplified and which cannot be explained.At the end of the transformation, some organizations and terrorist groups wanted to take it over for their evil plans; but some scientists did not agree because they did not know if the transformation had had any side effects, so some scientists wanted to cancel and cancel the experiment, at a certain point some scientists began to disobey the orders they were given, in the end they spray was sprayed on them to prevent them from fleeing and they were given orders that were given against their will.Ash travels with his partner May...In a quiet village the annual festival was in full swing.<> says Vera, << yes I'm coming, how many other shops do you have to show me around? >> Ash replies; before reaching his partner he sees a person he knows << Pikachu that's Misty, let's go and say hello to her, we haven't seen her in a long time. >> In the end Misty joins together with Ash.<> says Misty, so in the end Ash, Misty and May find a place to stay for the night.<< How strange it seemed to me that I saw a shadow, I must have been wrong. >> Ash says a little confused.<< There are only two rooms >> Ash was thinking of a solution.<> Vera replied.At that point everyone went to their rooms, but suddenly strange noises were heard in the house, coming from the kitchen...Strange footsteps approached Ash's roommates; suddenly we heard the sound of a moving vase rolling, it was almost about to fall, suddenly it was stopped by a suspicious shadow.<>……. << Ah sorry, it's just too dark that I can't see anything. >> …….. << Sshhh silence >>.Ash was woken up by the sound of the windows from the strong wind slamming, so he went into the kitchen << I really want a glass of milk, to sleep better >> said Ash, immediately afterwards he headed to his room to sleep.The two still unknown shadows were in front of the door of the two girls' bedroom, at which point Vera was woken up by the creaking of a noise; but at first she thought it was Ash, since she was still sleepy <>In that moment the girls were put to sleep with a handkerchief with some sleeping pill <The sun was rising. Ash was sleeping with Pikachu, but suddenly a strange noise was heard << crashh >> at that moment Pikachu was woken up by the noise << Pika! >> exclaimed Pikachu, who got out of bed and left the room, went through the door of the room to head into the kitchen, when he got there he found some shards of the destroyed vase, but he didn't understand how it broke; immediately afterwards he inspected the kitchen to see if everything was okay and finally went to wake up his coach…….<< Pika, Pika, Pikachu……>>Pikachu tried in every way to make him wake up, but he couldn't, so in the end he used his attack against him, which was the shock thunder that completely burned him until he woke up...<< Pikachu, what's wrong with you >> said Ash, as soon as he woke up.<< Pika, Pika... >> replied Pikachu who was very agitated and took him to the kitchen.<< Ah, the vase broke, maybe it was put in a bad way and it must have fallen accidentally >> Ash replied, heading towards the fridge to have breakfast.<< Come Pikachu, here's your breakfast, I know you like it a lot. >> Ash served breakfast to Pikachu; so he started by putting his breakfast on the table, a glass of milk and cereals << this is the best breakfast I prefer >> said Ash...After that much noise made by Pikachu and Ash, still no trace of the girls, << strange, but are Misty and May still sleeping? In a few hours we should already start going >> said Ash, while he was enjoying his breakfast, he asked Pikachu to wake them up and Pikachu was very happy to go to their room.<< Pikaaa…. >> replied Pikachu, who ran into the girls' room out of enthusiasm, but...Pikachu found himself in front of the room, opened it and suddenly found it empty, which at that point became confused as to where the girls are; maybe they went to the bathroom? Or maybe to get a breath of fresh air and some sun?So Pikachu checked the bathrooms, but nothing happened, he went into the living room, but they weren't there either, he went out of the house to call them, but no trace; at that point Pikachu went to Ash to warn him.<< Pika, Pika >> said Pikachu, he started gesturing very quickly, <> said Ash, so Pikachu took him to the girls' room, so at that point he showed Ash that the girls aren't there.<< Strange that they aren't there, yet their backpacks are still here >> said Ash who at that point started calling them << Misty, May......, where are you? >> Ash called them, but no response, at which point Pikachu noticed some strange footprints with a bit of mud and a strange handkerchief on the ground, who at that point called his trainer.<> replied Ash, who at that precise moment both understood that they had been kidnapped by someone, but it is not clear who or what...<< Pikachu we have to go, there's not a minute to waste. >> said Ash.Ash together with Pikachu went outside leaving their apartment, to head to the nearest Pokemon center……..Ash is inside a Pokemon center, where he was on a call with his mother and Professor Oak.<< Pikachu, we'll be on the line with mom soon. >> said Ash, at that moment he was very upset about the disappearance of his companions.<< Pika, Pika …….. Pikaaaa.>> Pikachu replied, he was in a hurry to go and save them.The screen turns on showing Delia Ketchum along with Professor Oak and Mr.Mime.<< Hi Ash, how is your coaching journey going? What's wrong, I see you're a little worried? >> the mother asked, seeing her son's very sad face.<< Not good, I was refueling for the trip. For now this is not the important thing. >> Ash replied.<< Pikachu, what's wrong? >> his mother asked, seeing that he was sad too.<< Mime Mime >> Mr.Mime was trying to mime something.<< Ash, have you caught any new Pokemon species? >> asked Professor Oak.<< Professor Oak, Misty and May have disappeared >> said Ash, he was very agitated.<> replied Professor Oak.Professor Oak thus begins to warn him of a strange event, that is, that an evil organization that not much is known about them, is presumed to have something to do with the disappearance of his friends, including Misty and May and that their disappearance they were last seen at the breeding ranch.Oak so sends Ash to investigate and do some investigating.Suddenly the video call signal starts to have disturbances.The signal is interrupted due to a fault, sparks and smoke begin to come out; Ash is caught by surprise after the signal is lost.Ash and Pikachu leave the Pokemon Center, then the nurses call a police officer for the car breakdown; So much smoke and sparks begin to come out that the nurse opens the windows, evacuating everyone from the building.Boooooommmm……… the building exploded Ash was thrown to the ground after the explosion because of this Pikachu was injured and a nurse came to his rescue to treat him, so Pikachu recovered in an instant.The trainer together with his Pikachu leave the Pokemon center to head to the breeding ranch.Meanwhile, in another place exactly at the Pokemon League in a secret laboratory they are conducting mysterious investigations with a strange organization that acts in the shadows.
